  1. I just started back today, about an hour ago. I'm taking 40 mg every other day, plus Bactrim DS and using Triaz face wash. My skin continued to dry out after stopping the Accutane for two weeks, so hopefully the breakout won't occur this time. I'm staying optomistic, but realistic this time too. I think the initial clearing last time made the breakout worse from a mental self image standpoint. If it happens that bad again, I'll probably stop again and stick with the anti-biotics. I'd rathe
  2. These jitters continue. This is day 4 with the shakes. It's like I took a handful of ephedrine pills. Ugh, it sucks. I'm really broken out too.

I take my pill at 7:30 am daily. 4. great sleep! this is a bonus, I'm sleeping like a baby at night. 5. moodiness and irratiblity- not so much a problem as just an in
  7. I'm 28, 5'10 and 130 lbs. I've had acne since I was 14. My mom, dad, and brother all had severe acne. I'm currently on 40 mg dose per day of Accutane. I started Accutane on March 10th. I had been on tetracycline and Triaz face wash for a couple of years with off and on success, but it just stopped working. So, I get my blood work done and off I go on the Tane. It was a miracle, or seemed to be. My skin was clear in a week and a half! Then I had a weird day of shakes and jitters and the
